otherwise known as Adventures in Descriptions.
As SLPs know, children with language disorders often have difficulty finding specific words to describe things. I’ve done therapy targeting describing words quite often. This new app by Smarty-Ears applications makes it a bit more fun.
Personally, I think this is a great app that is easy to use, adaptable, and will be a great addition to my therapy materials. Let’s get down to the particulars so you can make your own decision.
Name: Adjective Remix (this is a companion app for preposition remix)
As you can see from this page, the settings for the application are great. There are several concepts that are targeted (appearance, feelings, textures). The adult can also determine what happens when the child answers incorrectly, whether items are presented in order or randomly, and whether or not the text shows above each page.
The screen shots are nice and clear and are fairly simple so there is not a lot of visual distractions.
This is the report card for each student. If I had played multiple sessions it would have each one separated and clearly marked. The report card provides an “overall accuracy,” the date of administration, AND separates the score by category. So, if the child has a 75% accuracy the adult is able to see which concept area he or she struggled with the most.
Other nice things about the app – the app is Low cost $9.99 and Multi-Player which is great! As with all Smarty-Ears apps there is significant support embedded into the app including a video tutorial.
All in all, I’d say this app is great. It’s a wonderful addition to my therapy tool box and I look forward to using it with my students. I look forward to hearing your thoughts.
